For the fourth time in seven years, a team of local volunteers will travel across the country next week on their own time and dime to lend helping hands to victims of natural disaster. Local volunteer Marsha Hoppe brought together 40 men and women for this year's relief effort, which departs for Henryville, Ind., on Sunday to clean up after an F3 tornado that laid waste to the small town in March. The group of adults and high school or college-age youth will spend Monday through Thursday restoring three homes and three barns on an alpaca and llama farm, then return on Friday.
